appalling to hear a dialogue that talks about using religion to discriminate against both myself and my community. you know, when i was in high sdoo school, i was actually assaulted because i was gay. as a result, i spent most of my life down playing the fact. you know, i don't ride in pride parades and i don't really wear it on my cuff, but i really feel compelled to really put it out there. you know, i don't think that we deserve a bill like this anywhere in this country. >> joining me now, damian klinko, the arizona state representative you just heard from and washington post columnist jonathan capehart. what made you speak about the bill the way you did, using your own personal reference, which as you said is not something that you are inclined to do. >> i used my own story because this is a personal attack against me and everyone in the lgbt community in the state of arizona. the community doesn't deserve this sort of treatment. and i don't think there's ever an excuse that we should sanction discrimination against a minority group. it makes me sad and disappointed in a state that
in this video. take a close look at this surveillance video from true religion brand jeans in georgetown. nearly two weeks ago, just before 6:30 in the evening, a dozen teens walk in the front door holding bags. police say the flash mob steals over a thousand dollars worth of clothes and walks out. tonight true religion employees won't comment, but other georgetown fashion businesses are speaking out. >> i can't believe that all of those people could steal something all at one time. >> reporter: maria works at camper, a high-end shoe store a couple of doors down. >> are you ever concerned that something like that could happen? >> all the time. i mean, we've had plenty of people steal a few shoes just in our window display. so i can only imagine having all those merchandise taken all at once. >> take a look at what they do. >> reporter: i showed the surveillance video to cameron murrell, a senior research and grad. >> it's disheartening that we work every day, we make a decent amount of money to try to be able to afford these things and they just go in and take it. it's really disheartening, disa
of legislation. tell me how this is tied to, and maybe differs from arizona's freedom of religion laws. >> that is an interesting question, how did arizona get to this moment? i wish we could speak to that, but where would we begin. the freedom of religion law passed in 1999 and existed at the federal lovel level in 1993. we inserted a line in this newest incarnation of the bill that talks specifically about a belief being sincerely held. that's where people are getting hung up and feeling like everybody feels that their beliefs are sincerely held. that is language added to this bill, and some say it clarifies. >> say the governor signs this piece of legislation into law, and businesses turn away gays and lesbians lead to go discrimination lawsuits. would it be up to a judge to determine the sincerity of a business ow owner's religious convictions? >> reporter: in arizona the state does not prohibit gay or lesbian. in three of our largest cities they are. in that case the city would have to bring case against the individual business owner. so a person, i, couldn't bring a lawsuit again
's exercise of religion without showing compelling government interest. the orange states are states that if passed rfra-like provisions by court decision. you can see that in the wall street journal if you want to learn more about that. we are skipping with our colors. renÉe is waiting in california. good morning. caller: i wanted to correct one thing here. iticus that talks about man laying down with man. you guys get the views from the homosexual side but you also need to get the other side here. i don't believe in same-sex marriage. i hate the fact that people always want to compare homosexuality with racial. that has nothing to do with it. it is a lifestyle that they choose. i am an a store and christian, i should not be forced to make a cake for two women or two men. that is my right. the thing about it is, god will in the end.al say his were never changes. it is all the same. it was a sin before and it's a sin now. god does not hate the sinner, he hates the sin. you worry about the example of the wedding cake. that example also brought up in today's washington post in their l
that called virginia's ban on gay passenger unconstitutional. a pal just released by the public religion institute, it finds a majority of americans, 53 appearance, now support gay marriage. that same survey put support at only 32 appearance just 10 years ago. >>> there are new developments from ukraine tonight. the u.s. is once again crashing with russian president vladimir put putin, secretary of state kerry warning vladimir putin to be careful after he ordered military drills near the ukrainian border. >> reporter: the russian defense minister may have denied there's any connection between president putin's sudden military order today and events unfolding in ukraine. all one really needs to do is take a look at a russian-ukrainian border where these complex war games will be playing out the next six days or so and see how close it is to ukraine's flash points, like the pro russian eastern ukraine, just to understand what might be called vladimir putin's unspoken message, something like don't push me in my own backyard. still, for several days now we've seen one russian official after
to have unwelcome contact with the cross, arguing it comes to governmental promotion of religion. >> it is government speech. they are making a statement here with this religious symbol. >> there are other memorials to other wars nearby. miss.e cross is hard to the park and planning commission tells me they have not been served, so they cannot comment. they also tell me the peace cross has always been a tribute to war heroes and nothing more. are there any plans to remove it at this point? >> at this point, i don't believe so. >> nor should it be removed, some say. >> you have to be kidding. >> at the nearby american legion, i say it is not just up in arms but he takes it personally. >> to me it is like slapping veterans in the face. it's a tribute to veterans. i have no idea what they have against veterans. planningrk and commission has 60 days to respond to the lawsuit. both sides say they are ready to fight over the peace cross. in bladensburg, greta kreuz, abc 7 news. >> thank you, greta. >> are remember that since i was a little kid. caps? >> back in action, back on the ice
religion, also under consideration at this point. joining me here onset to make sense of all of this is one of the big voices from the last few years of lgbt advocacy, roberta caplin argued edie windsor's case before the supreme court. i can only imagine how stressful it was. you had an entire movement riding on your shoulders. thank you for joining us and trying to make sense of the latest events. we see yesterday's news out of texas, similar rulings before that in virginia and kentucky. what do you think the future holds for those cases? what do you think the next thing to hit the supreme court might be? >> the windsor case came down at the end of june. since that decision there have been 15 court decisions in courts throughout the country in places like as you mentioned, kentucky, virginia, utah, oklahoma, all relying on windsor. i don't think that's surprising at all. windsor is about the core dignity of gay people and how they have the same type of dignity and should get the same respect as everyone else. once the supreme court has said that as i predicted back in the summer, it's all
religion, but as thomas jefferson was so shocked to find out, there is one religion that has a small component of it that believes that a sure way to paradise is to kill innocent men, women and children because they don't those religiously like radicals do. it's the reason thomas jefferson got his own copy of the koran that the library of congress still has. he wanted to see for himself. he was so well-read. he couldn't believe there was a religion that had a book, a holy book for a basis that would allow anyone to interpret it in such a way as to kill innocent men, women and children. there have been, to be sure, purported christians over the ages that thought it was their duty to go about and brutalize people who were not christians, but anyone who studies the teachings of christ about how we're to individually act knows those would not have been christians doing the kind of iolence that they did. it's not supported by the bible . what is supported in the bible is if you do evil, be afraid because god does not give the government to sort in vain. individually we're not supposed vi
emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation. governor brewer has until saturday to veto the bill. hough, just a few hours ago she tweeted "i assure you, as always, i will do the right thing for the state of arizona." i throw it to you, joe. >> first of all, this was such a needle lesless battle that repus of arizona put on the front pages of papers nationwide. i say needless ba lesless becaut hard to believe that the supreme court would ever allow a law to be upheld that would let somebody that own as restaurant deny service to somebody because of their sexual orientation. for those who say, well, somebody should be able to do that based on their devout religious beliefs, do you then give -- because if you're going to allow somebody to not serve a customer based on their sexual orientation because they see that as a sin, that then allows other restaurant owners in arizona to decide they're not going to serve someone who himself been divorced, like myself, or someone who has committed adultery, or if you want
to get rid ofr race, religion, tribalism and melt them all down through a powerful centralized your accuracy and make them into a new soviet man. it collapsed because when against human nature. the imperative of the human nature. when it collapsed under the weight of human nature, there was no explosion of tribe and religion that is always under the surface. you will never rid the world of tribalism and ethnic identity. the same thing is happening now in america. we slowly lose our liberty as we have to have a powerful keepalized bureaucracy to the growing ethnic tensions in line. that is what is happening here. host: do you think there's anything that should be done right now in the ukraine? caller: no. let them do what they are going to do anyway. one thing i'd do is i admire putin because he is a nationalist. the russian people are dying out. he stopped international adoption and months to rescue his children with them. he is encouraging that through different things. i admire the guy. i wish i would have a leader like that. from john calling in pennsylvania this morning. the sen
the world. >> father jonathan morris saw this movie. our fox news religion contributor. father, good to see you. what'd you think of it? >> well done! i live tweeted my experience of the film. i thought it was well done. it proves when you have the formula of great talent, and mark burnett and row ma downey are great talent, and production qualities, and secondly you have money put into it, and they did do that, and thirdly, you have faith-filled producers doing a film, it works. and ten years ago to the weekend, "the passion of the christ" came out. this came out -- this movie came out on friday, beat expectations. the industry had suggested maybe $7.2 million. it's now grossed $9.4 million on a friday. it's going to have a good weekend. it beat "the lego movie." and so -- >> hollywood has learned that the bible kind of sells. >> it does, as long as it's done, as i mentioned, that form la with the faith-filled producers and super good talent. you can't just put jesus on the screen and have him make money for you. >> it must be difficult to play jesus. >> no pressure, you know, of the chara
